BIGHORNS DROP SECOND STRAIGHT TO LEGENDS
March 24, 2012
FRISCO, TEX.— Will Blalock scored a season-high 23 points but it was not enough for the Reno Bighorns as they drop their second-straight game to the Texas Legends Saturday night. Mo Charlo had the team’s only double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds and Andre Emmett, the NBA D-League’s leading scorer, was held to only 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting in the 120-113 loss.
The teams were tied after the first quarter but the Legends outscored the Bighorns by 13 points in the second and third quarters to take the lead and eventually win the game. The Legends were led by Anthony Vereen’s 23 points and Antonio Daniels 12 points and 13 rebounds.
The Bighorns shot 53.2 percent from the field compared to the Legend’s 50.6 percent, but the Legends grabbed 15 offensive rebounds leading to second-chance points. The game was called tightly by the referees, with both teams combining for 84 free throw attempts.
Newly acquired NBA veteran David Harrison was held to nine points after picking up his fifth foul early in the third quarter and sitting for much of the second half.
The Bighorns will travel to Los Angeles for their next game against the D-Fenders on Wednesday, March 28 at the Toyota Sports Center. The team will return to the Reno Events Center for its final two home games against the Idaho Stampede on Friday, March 30 at 7 p.m. and April 1 at 3 p.m.
